Introduction
Medicinal plants are now becoming more widely used by people all over the world. People understand the gentle strength
of these natural remedies. Doctors and scientists are validating the wisdom of traditional plant use. Although a few of
the remedies are strong, most can be used safely and without the side effects of drugs. Furthermore, these natural
remedies can be used to cure problems rather than just mask symptoms.
Much of the information about medicinal plants is in the form of their actions. Rather than saying a plant is used for
insomnia, many references will state that it has the action “sedative” or “hypnotic”. Properties and actions of medicinal
plants describe the action of the plant on the body. This book has a companion volume, Medicinal Plant Actions, which lists
each plant with the properties and actions for that plant.
In natural medicine, medicinal plants are often chosen to balance a person. There is usually a long list of plants available
for a specific symptom. To find the best plant on the list, certain desired properties are needed. For instance, suppose the
problem is a headache. If the person is overly warm and over-stimulated, a cooling, sedative medicinal plant is chosen. If
there is nervous agitation and a headache, a nervine tonic action will be desired from those medicinal plants which are
also helpful with headaches.
One of my goals in compiling this guide is to find what I call “cross-cultural convergence”. This is where the same action
is found in different cultures for the same medicinal plant. For instance, hops is noted to have the action “sedative” by
fourteen authors with information from Amsterdam, America, Germany, Nepal, England and Native American
traditions.
The use of hops in such diverse cultures suggests that hops is indeed effective as a sedative. In this guide there are
numbers in parenthesis, which indicate the number of agreeing references. Where there is a higher number in parenthesis,
there is more agreement as to the actions of a remedy. Remedies with only one reference may also be effective in
producing the desired action. The references have been chosen to represent diverse cultures.
Doctors will find this reference invaluable for finding medicinal plants with the actions desired. Schools and Universities
will find it a necessary reference on medicinal plant actions. Libraries and researchers will find unique knowledge listed
here. Pharmacists and pharmaceutical companies can find medicinal plants with their pattern of actions. Herbalists will
find this information intriguing and useful.
This excerpt lists 64 of the 862 actions, properties, or effects of medicinal plants in the full book. It is intended to help us
find plants that have a specific action. The action definitions help with the less familiar actions and properties used by
herbalists.
This volume is based upon the extensive database, Natural Healing Solutions. There are over 20,000 footnotes associated with
the information in the full book. A list of references is included. Please refer to the database for the individual footnotes.
This volume would become unwieldy and unreadable with the footnotes included in this text.
